Hoop Lore Pics

This page contains most of the photos I purchased for use in Hoop Lore. In an effort to contain publishing costs, McFarland used only black and white photos throughout the book, and downsized most of them considerably.  I understood the financial consideration, but I always thought it was a shame. Now that I have this blog, I have opted to share them with you in the manner they were meant to be seen.

Note: all photos on this page are the property of the respective photographers or copyright holders listed at the bottom of this page. Photos are displayed in low resolution for viewing purposes only to prevent printout and unauthorized reproduction. (Clicking on thumbnails will enlarge the photos but not the resolution.)

Think of this page as a visual history of the NBA.

Copyrights as follows:
Steve Lipofsky Basketballphoto.com: all color photos plus Bob Cousy.
Dick Raphael: Russell & Chamberlain, Abdul-Jabbar (Bucks), Erving (ABA), West, Frazier, Robertson.
Basketball Hall of Fame: Naismith, fist basketball team, caged court, Buffalo Germans, Harlem Rens, Baisone, Mikan, Baylor
USA Basketball: 1936 & 1972 Olympic teams

    I am happy to have stumbled upon it.

    Here’s a funny quote to make you smile : If ignorance is bliss, why aren’t more people happy? :
